  1. Give it more time, what were his main symptoms??? I know for myself, I felt worse before I felt better. We did see an instant improvement with my young ds though, but he was pooping 5-7 time per day.
  2. How Soon After Gluten Do You React?

    Interesting....my joint pain is def better, but my stomach systems are still going, but I am sure that is my body detoxing. So the longer you are gluten free does that mean the worse your reaction will have?? I haven't been gluten-free a terribly long time, just was thinking about that.
  3. Dear Pf Changs,

    Yum!! We went to PF Changs post dxn and had a super yummy dinner, I got really sick the next day and I thought it was gluten but everyone said they are SUPER careful. Well a few months later found out I was allergic to soy, so I am sure that was what it was. I am very very very sad I probably can't eat there anymore . I miss soy sauce and chinese type food.
  4. Do Any Of You Wear A Med Bracelet?

    Is your son Celiac?? My ds is only almost 3 now, but when he gets older and goes to preschool, etc I think this would be a good idea! I don't have one, I pretty sure my family would be there asap and would fill them in. If I had a life threatening allergy then I would, but it can't be a bad idea.
  5. Is it always instantly?? I made a stupid mistake last night and ate some tastee sandwiches, well just the meat, no bread. My grandma thought they were fine, well after this morning I am thinking they were not. I looked up the recipe and there was liption onion soup mix, which pretty positive that is not okay if that is the recipe they used. Guess I can't assume anything, lesson learned. I've been going to the bathroom a lot, stomach cramps, and joint pain....probably gluten, huh?? I didn't know if it had soy sauce (allergic to soy), but I don't think so. I was just curious, I am usually VERY careful.....how long does it last for you??
  6. Interesting, I am part a diocease that doesn't do wine either, just for priests/alters, etc. The asst. preist at my church has Celiac and he said the hosts made by the Benedictine Sisters are okay, I think the gluten in them is not even measurable?? I have been taking them and done okay too. It's a bit of pain though to work it out, I just very last after the ushers and they get the little thing with the hosts in it for me. This is what I found on their website: "Celiac Research that showed that the 0.01% gluten content of our breads would be perfectly safe for most celiacs. The article states The measurement cited here, 0.01%, represents 100 PPMs (parts per million). But the more important number is 37 micrograms, because it is daily exposure to gluten that counts. The best current information shows that 10 milligrams a day should be safe. Ten milligrams is the same as 10,000 micrograms. If you divide 37 micrograms into 10,000 micrograms, you will find that you would have to eat 270 wafers every day to reach the danger point. At most, celiacs would consume one wafer per day or about 0.04% (four tenths of one percent) of the amount considered dangerous.". They do have to be ordered but I'd def talk to your pastor.
  7. Mom's who use woolies, do you keep your favorite sets??

  8. White Cake Recipe?

    Yeah I saw that when I was searching, I don't know if I can find it sold around here. So it tasted pretty good, like if you're having a birthday party everyone would like it?? My dh made the most awesome chocolate german cake from scratch, omg it's sooo good and moist!!
  9. I am looking for a good white cake recipe, think birthday cake white . Thanks!!
  10. Digestive Enzymes?

    Has anyone used these to help heal their stomach?? If so what kind did you use and did they really help??
  11. Was Food Allergy Tested Today....

    Yeah that's why my allergist said I can try the foods I have to do it over a month I guess. Not for awhile though, but eventually. That makes sense. I read though that most don't loose a peanut allergy, but maybe I will be one of the lucky few. If not I guess it's not the end of the world. Although going gluten free cut my candy bar choices down and now even more....not sure even what I could eat without gluten or peanuts. Thanks for the explanation.
  12. Was Food Allergy Tested Today....

    So you take allergy meds year round then?? I do have seasonal allergies and take it on and off during the allergy season. I forgot to tell the doctor but when I was laying there maybe 5 minutes into it my heart was beating really fast for the second half, but not for a long time or anything. Probably not a big deal though?? So you hear about peanut allergies all the time and how scary they can be. I know mine isn't severe, but when I avoid it and then get it again can't the reaction be worse?? I just worry he didn't say anything about an epipen, but maybe with the severity he didn't think I needed it?? Probably me just worrying too much.
  13. I decided to go ahead and do this even though I didn't really think I had any true allergies. I figured it never hurts to check before I started guessing and pulling things out of my diet. The allergist didn't think we were dealing with true IgE allergies, but maybe delayed IgE allergies or more intolerances. Mostly stomach he said can be true allergies, but often are not. I did have a month not too long ago where I kept getting hives, but it went away. Anyway, found out that I had a reaction to green peas, peanuts, and soybeans. At first I wanted to cry when I added gluten to that, but then I kind of thought about it and hopefully it won't be too bad. He wants me to remove those from my diet and do it for a month and see if my stomach problems resolve and then I can try to add one one month at a time. He seemed to be hopeful that I might be able to tolerate soy, as it was the least reactive. I was a little confused, so if you have a reaction, but you don't notice it then it's okay to eat it?? That's what I got from what he said. I believe my soybean was 2+ and peas and peanuts 3+. Oh and if anyone has had these kind of reactions did you feel better soon after eliminating?? Also it seems to me when you are diagnosed with anything autoimmune it seems common for allergies to show up, I wonder why that is??
  14. This Is Gluten Free Right?

    Hmm, so it is gluten free, but probably has cc issues then??
  15. This Is Gluten Free Right?

    Well something is still getting me, but could be another food, not sure. I was thinking CC might be a risk. I guess I'll call them, but I'll probably just go back to vanilla ice cream to be safe. Might call for the heck of it though.
